Zurich 29 June 2011 – Bitplane, a world leading creator and supplier of 3D and 4D image processing, analysis and visualisation software, today announced the launch of their new Imaris 7.3 software. Imaris 7.3 brings significant enhancements to pivotal features within several Imaris modules enabling users to perform increasingly more challenging image analyses.

New capabilities include novel segmentation functions in ImarisCell's, advanced filters in Imaris MeasurementPro and further expansion of ImarisXT. Building on the success of Imaris software to date, new features in Imaris 7.3 will greatly enhance the performance of existing Imaris systems making it the clear software choice for 3D and 4D visualization and analysis.

The new ImarisCell takes analysis of relationships between cells and cellular components further by using plasma membranes for segmentation of cells. With cellular organelles treated as biologically meaningful units, users can detect and analyze multiple populations of vesicles inside cells. Imaris MeasurementPro offers a new array of flexible filters to measure and visualize similarity between segmented objects. ImarisXT is now available for Mac OS X and offers additional Java support crucial for improved bi-directional data exchange with MatLab, ImageJ and other software.

Imaris is Bitplane’s core software platform and delivers industry-leading functionality for visualization and analysis of 3D and 4D microscopy data sets. Imaris has experienced ongoing success as it continues to outperform competition with a higher degree of interaction, an ability to process very large image data sets, by segmenting and analysing cellular components within individual cells and providing accurate measurements for cell biologists and neuro-scientists.
